Sopley Mill, Mill Lane, Sopley, Hampshire
This beautiful 1878 watermill, surrounded on both sides by the Millstream of the river Avon closed as a restaurant on 28th October, 2011. The owners of the Mill, which has been in the same family for over 150 years, have taken this wonderful building back in hand from the tenants for a complete renovation. Once finished it will be opened as a stunning wedding venue with incredible views over the Avon water-meadows.
The restoration project is estimated to take most of 2012. This includes uncovering the original architecture inside the Mill and restoring the gardens and outbuildings.
